The 2017 documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe on the founding of the state of Israel is based on hard-to-access archival records and documents in Israel and hundreds of interviews of Palestinians and Israelis who participated in the events of 1948. The documentary was researched, filmed, and edited by Andy Trimlett, Producer KPBS, (2006-15), Director 1948: Creation and Catastrophe (2008-present)  and Ahlam Muhtaseb, Ph.D., Professor Communication Studies CSUSB,
1948: Creation and Catastrophe (2008-present).

1948 tells the story of the establishment of the modern country of Israel as seen through the eyes of the people who lived it. But rather than being a history lesson, this documentary is a primer for the present. It is simply not possible to make sense of what is happening in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today without an understanding of 1948.  Hear stories from the Israelis and Palestinians who personally lived through events in Haifa, Jaffa, Dayr Yasin, Acre, Jerusalem, Ramla, Lydda and more.
